William R. Noonan and John Finigan were partners the new Newark Motors Chevrolet agency that opened in 1927 on South Main Street, the same building that now houses Ruffalo Appliance. In the later 1930's, having outgrown the South Main St. location, they moved to 229 West Union Street. Eventually Newark Motors sold Chevrolet and Oldsmobile on what was known as New Route 31 or Lyons Road, the building that now is home to Quality Home Furnishings.
William Noonan died in 1957 and the Chevrolet-Oldsmobile business was purchased by Victor DePauw of Macedon. DePauw moved the dealership to a large former International Harvester building on West Union Street near the edge of the village. Later owners of the Chevrolet-Olds dealership were Ken Robie and Mike Barnard who has operated at that location for almost 30 years.
